After KAWS announced that a massive 36-meter-long COMPANION piece would be making its debut in Taipei, the collaborative project with creative studio AllRightsReserved has finally been revealed to the public. The largest sculptural work by the artist to date, KAWS:HOLIDAY depicts the recognizable COMPANION character in a seated position, overlooking Liberty Square in front of the famed Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall. Teaming up with Singaporean singer JJ Lin’s JFJ Productions, the exhibition kicked off with a grand opening event Friday evening, coupled with an exclusive merch release. The items include a range of vinyl figurines, ceramic plates, tees and tote bags that are available online and offline at the exhibition’s pop up shop.

See what went down at the opening event in the recap video below, and visit KAWS:HOLIDAY in person now until Jan. 27, 2019.
